In British railways, most trains have a thing called a Driver's Reminder Appliance (D.R.A). It's a button that the driver presses if the signal is red which prevents them from pulling off without checking the signal again - they have to disable it (and check the signal) before they can turn up the throttle and start moving again. At Clapham Junction, I have found a Driver Reminder Appliance Reminder. Which may be the most 'railway' thing I've ever seen.

This MTurk requester wanted to pay me $0.05, to draw a box around every human in a packed baseball stadium. I think even AI would just be like "yeah, f*** that".

Well, that's the first time I've seen that error message being used to it's intended purpose...
